Friends here threw me a going-away party, and have become impatient for me to go-away. How can we miss you if you won't leave? Fine! I'll leave no later than very soon.
I've spent a lovely two weeks girl-camping with Vermont Chris, Jeannie, and Andi. Girl-camping is just like regular camping, but cuter.

They all left (me alone and blue) this morning.
It has been crazy-windy around here lately, which unreasonably made me want to wash Spud at the Elephant Butte car wash. This was ill-advised (picture it). The upside is that I am protected against the weather, and am ready to buff.
I'm going to Datil this week to spend a couple of days with the cabin. I've realized for some time that the place needs a name, so if I spend some quiet time with it I hope it will suggest itself to me.

A friend from back in New York State was shocked to read that I intend to camp this winter, having just bought a "house." Her incredulity made me wonder if I have made my plans clear outside my head.
I want the cabin to be a haven, but not a homestead - yet. I want a place to be, whenever I want to be there, and for as long as I want to be there. A home base. I left New York with the intention of seeing things. My personal and family life has changed since then, but my desire to explore has only increased.
Tell me where you think I should explore this winter.
